Amplified Bible

Psalm 110

The Lord Gives Dominion to the King.

A Psalm of David.

1The Lord (Father) says to my Lord (the Messiah, His Son),
“Sit at My right hand
Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet [subjugating them into complete submission].”

The Lord will send the scepter of Your strength from Zion, saying,
“Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”

Your people will offer themselves willingly [to participate in Your battle] in the day of Your power;
In the splendor of holiness, from the womb of the dawn,
Your young men are to You as the dew.


The Lord has sworn [an oath] and will not change His mind:
[a]You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at Your right hand,
He [b]will crush kings in the day of His wrath.

He will execute judgment [in overwhelming punishment] among the nations;
He will fill them with corpses,
He will crush the chief men over a broad country.

He will drink from the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He will lift up His head [triumphantly].

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 110:4 In rabbinic legend, Shem (the son of Noah) was Melchizedek, and God had planned to make him the first high priest. But when he blessed Abraham without first blessing God (Gen 14:18f), God gave the priesthood to Abraham instead.
  2. Psalm 110:5 Lit has smashed, probably a prophetic construction, and so in v 6.

Psalms 110

Psalm 110

Evig Kung och Präst, en messiansk psalm.[a]

1En psalm av David.

Herren sa till min Herre:

”Sätt dig på min högra sida

tills jag har lagt dina fiender

som en pall under dina fötter.”

2Herren ska sträcka ut din makts spira från Sion.

Härska bland dina fiender!

3Villigt kommer ditt folk,

när du intar makten.

I helig prakt, ur morgongryningen

kommer den unga skaran till dig, som dagg.[b]

4Herren har svurit och kommer inte att ändra sig:

”Du är präst för evigt, så som Melkisedek.”

5Herren står vid din sida.

Han krossar kungar på sin vredes dag.

6Han dömer folken,

överallt samlas lik,

och han krossar hövdingar på hela jorden.[c]

7Han dricker ur bäcken vid vägen

och lyfter huvudet högt.
